How Siding Can Boost Your Home Value
Is your home “that house” on the block? Are you upgrading your home for resale and want to get the best outcome possible? Well, now’s the time to learn how siding can beautify and boost your home value according the National Association of Realtors.
The resale values for siding replacement have held steady. On average, homeowners recouped between 70% and 80% of the cost of the siding during resale. That is an average for all of the properties that were surveyed. Siding that is in disrepair greatly diminishes the property value, and the recoup percentage in those cases is much higher. In fact, not only does the improvement aid in selling the house and reducing the time finding a buyer, but a restored exterior can often bring more financial gain than the cost of the project because of the value added.
Replacing siding is one of the best ways to improve the appearance of a home’s exterior and make your home’s exterior look brand new.
Here are three ways that new siding can boost your home value:
- Enhanced Beauty and Curb Appeal – Siding just makes a home look great. Clean lines, crisp colors that won’t fade or chip, and matching trim and accessories can completely transform the look of your home.
- Lower Maintenance – Most siding materials require little or no maintenance to keep them looking great. A great selling point is that vinyl siding never needs to be painted.
- Energy Efficient– Insulated siding adds an extra layer between the elements and your home. That means wind and cold can be stopped, reducing monthly energy bills. A new home buyer is always concerned about the energy costs of a property.
Which siding material should you choose?
